This weekend zipped by. There was a lot of cooking, eating and spending time with family and one of my closest friends since the fourth grade, Jerri. I made two of her favorite things for dinner on Friday night: black bean soup and guacamole. While I was prepping our meal, Jerri created the foundation of my plant. An avocado pit, four toothpicks, water, and a short glass — in three to four weeks, there should be a tap root and a baby tree soon after. If only Hoboken had the climate to cultivate an actual avocado tree. Have a great week!
